There is more than enough pressure from a bench vice to make an impression of the memorial.

Someone tried to make this coin look like an error by pressing another coin (or at least a section of another) into the obverse. The flattened reverse and fact that the coin is no longer round point to this. It could have been done with a vise or maybe a hit from a hammer. As noted above it was done outside of the mint and most likely long after the coin was struck.
The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"

Yes, just deliberate, deceptive damage.

It is transferred off another coin. When you see the devices they are mirrored:

If this were a die issue the devices would be normal, not mirrored and raised not incuse:
